I'm really worried about my friend Friedrich, until today I haven't heard anything from him for the last few weeks. I decided to message him and ask if anything is wrong, and he responded with some weird messages. Now I'm even more concerned! I screenshotted the messages for you to see (I also included a text-only version).

Some additional clarifications/info:
- The dates are in the format
- The time is in the format
- He, for some reason, changed his username to
- I'll update if anything worth mentioning happens, assuming someone didn't solve it by then.
He just sent me a new message! It seems to be independent from the others, since he only responded when I sent something before. Maybe it's not even encrypted!

I just sent him a message on
Sat, 10/09/2016 20:37, but he never responded back... Weird... Before he always responded to every message! And considering where he comes from, he shouldn't be asleep so early!
What does the fact that he is not named "Frederick" but "Friedrich" most likely say about him?
Update #4 (two seperate hints)
The spaces in the message of Update #1 may be more important seperators than you think.
What is he trying to say, what happened to him and where is he?
